This quilt is made using a quilt-as-you-go technique. When the top is finished - so is the quilting! Just add the binding and label, and you are done.
The DH and I will move to TN as soon as our home sells. Of course, we had to move a lot of our possessions into storage, including my sewing furniture and supplies!! Aarrgghh! So, I designed Tennessee Trotter so I could easily "quilt" it using my home sewing machine. No need to struggle trying to muscle a large quilt through the throat of my machine. The DH has already moved to TN, so he will use this quilt on the air bed in his tiny apartment.
You can make this quilt any size you want - just add blocks and rows to meet your needs. Enjoy!

My mother taught me to sew when I was 8 - doll clothes by hand, then she moved me on to her old Singer. Home Ec in the 7th grade solidified sewing as part of what makes me who I am. Interestingly, the school had a room full of treadle machines!
Throughout the years, clothing and home decor were my thing. Cutting a beautiful piece of fabric into little pieces and sewing them together again didn't make sense. But when my first great-niece was born, I made my first quilt for her and was hooked!
As a new quilter, I couldn't find designs that were easy enough, so, I got design software and started tinkering. Now that I am retired, I pretty much just quilt, design quilts, and line dance. My charity work is for Quilts of Valor - check them out at www.qovf.org. I'm not a pattern publishing house. I just love simple, traditional quilt designs that use only a few colors. Thanks to Craftsy.com, I can share them with you. I hope you enjoy them.
